FEATURED PHOTO - (a worldatlas.com photo) From the 32nd floor of the Grand Hyatt Hotel in central Cairo, this is an early morning view of the Gezira district on the city's central island; an island that's surrounded by the Nile River. Financed by American funds, and completed in 1961, the Cairo Tower (center right) stands at 187 m (610 ft) tall. It's 43 m (140 ft) higher than the Great Pyramid of Giza, which stands some 15 km (9.3 mi) to the southwest. The Sheraton Gezira Hotel fronts the Nile, center left.
